      Maria Hein BA ’74 retired in 2015 after a lifetime of working in the education/nonprofit world. She and her husband, Kermit McCarthy BA ’71, promptly decided to pursue a building career by constructing a cabin on the McCarthy family farm near Parkdale, Oregon. She says they learned everything they needed to know about two days after they needed to know it. Now that the cabin is nearly done, Hein jokes that she will be claiming the title of “Spackling Queen.”
